Stark/Targ Help

3 posts in this topic

So I've decided to undertake a challenge by making a Targ/Stark deck using either the Alliance or Treaty with the North Agenda. I've got it down to kind of where I want it, but I could really use some help polishing it off. (Please no comments about how impossible or crappy this idea is.) The deck uses Targ as the main house to utilize the burn and strength reducing capabilities, and then throws in the cheap bolton armies and some solid Stark characters. What is cool about this is how synergistic some of the Stark cards like Shaggydog and Grey Wind are with burn. The resource scheme is kinda wonky, and I'm forced to go to some alternate strength reducing ideas because of the house lineup, but I enjoy this deck.

I would have to see the deck in action to really get a feel for anything to change as far as the draw deck, but two suggestions leap out at me:

1. You should seriously consider running the Alliance plot instead of Treaty. Giving your opponent a free card or 2 gold (or not, if you can include a triggered effect cancel) is less devastating in the long run than taking 5 power off their winning condition. You'd be surprised how many decks can rush to 10 power really quickly, then stall out on the last 5.

2. Twist of Fate, while a great card if you can make it work to your advantage in some cases, is kind of a trap. Your better off finding another 2 claim (if that's what your after), and sacrificing one gold and the initiative for something like Men of Pride (4-0-2). If you're not really dependent on keywords for your non-uniques, this can be a much, much better option for you.

Thanks. I did go with the alliance deck option. The deck starts out a little slow, and ten power is just too much of a stressor on the deck. I'm still playing around with the plot deck choices.
